    Madame Jeanette (Capsicum chinense) is a chili pepper cultivar originally from Suriname.

    The fruits are shaped like small bell peppers but with Habanero-like heat. The peppers ripen to reddish-yellow but they are larger and not symmetrical. Its flavour is described as "fruity", with hints of mango and pineapple. The Madam Jeanette is also known as the "Suriname Yellow" and it may be related to the "Suriname Red". It is often confused with the yellow Adjuma, which is less elongated and said to be more spicy but less flavourful. Madame Jeanette is used in almost all facets of Surinamese cuisine. The plant is very prolific. It has a relatively compact growth and dislikes cool sites. It will also grow indoors.
